  NDE boss identifies solution to youth unemployment

The National Directorate of Employment has advocated agriculture as a solution to the problem of unemployment confronting youths in the country.

The State Coordinator of NDE in Ondo State , Mr. Olayinka Olaitan, said this in Akure during the orientation ceremony for participants into various programmes of the directorate.

According to him, the global food crisis offered an opportunity for youths in the country to venture into agriculture as a way of creating employment and generating wealth.

He noted that Nigeria should not be importing any food item since the nation was blessed with fertile soil to grow almost any type of crop.

He said that the directorate was involved in the training of “school leavers, graduates of various tertiary institutions and mature people in various areas of human endeavours, including agro-based and non agro-based.”

Olaitan said that the NDE in the state had trained over 30,000 persons in various vocations since its inception in 1987.

He said, “The special Public Work will recruit 50 graduates into its Graduate Attachment Programme and 25 school leavers into horticulture/landscaping and environment beautification scheme.”

Olaitan added that the vocational skills department of the directorate would train 750 persons in catering, aluminium fabrication, computer and mobile phone repairs.
